Even after dropping their dogs off at LIttle Rascals, owners are never truly separated from their pups—they can always check in on them through a live webcam feed. That's just one of the amenities that elevate the grooming, boarding, and day care center to feeling more like a dog resort. While at the facility, dogs play with a range of toys that include balls, tug-of-war ropes, and Frisbees. Pups who stay overnight snooze in a choice of quarters that range from a simple crate to a cageless suite complete with a child-size human bed.

When it comes to keeping pets looking good, the grooming technicians at Little Rascals transform dog fur into chic, clean coats with their washes and deshedding services. A slew of training classes also teach pups fundamental skills for living in the human world, such as how to fetch a newspaper without swallowing a single bite of it. Even cats have a place here, with grooming services created just for them.

Conveniently located in Georgetown, The Dog Shop saves you a trip to the suburbs with a rambunctious boxer in the backseat. Walk your pup to the bright and friendly shop, where employees have been known to play with four-legged customers' bipedal shopping companions.

Planet Pet in Adams Morgan is a paradise for pets. The universe of Planet Pet includes a shop, a grooming salon, a daycare center and a pet hotel. They also do nutrition counseling, training and dog walking. The pet shop, although somewhat sparse, stocks all-natural pet food and supplies, mainly for cats and dogs, but also carries some stuff for the average rabbit or guinea pig. The doggy daycare section is staffed by an animal-crazy crowd, and there is even a convenient curbside drop-off for parents leaving their pets for the day or just for a few hours. Not to mention, the boarding center is staffed every single hour of the year.

ThankDog! Bootcamp's team boasts a personal trainer and nutritionist, as an exerciser would expect, but there's also one unusual staffer: a dog trainer. That's because the boot camps don't just focus on the fitness of owners, they also tend to the physical and behavioral health of pooches. While humans work out under the leadership of the personal trainer, furry friends follow along with guidance from the dog trainer, which results in tighter bodies for owners and better behaviors for pets.
